The festival is over for another year and we’d like to thank our presenting partner Smeg Australia, our media partners Australian Gourmet Traveller, Gourmet Traveller WINE, Smooth FM 95.3, brand partners Plumm Glassware, Espresso di Manfredi (for the yummy coffee & those delicious Manfredi Martinis), Campari Australia (the return of those irresistable Negronis), Sanpellegrino water & soft drinks , Menabrea Beer, our creative house INK, website masters Retail Labs and of course Tramontina Cookware.
Our sell out event would not have been possible without the support of all CIRA chefs and their teams for Sydney’s top Italian restaurants. To all our wine & food exhibitors who triumphantly brought Italy to Sydney Town Hall – grazie!
Our ‘Tour d’Italia’ Festival Dinner at BALLA was also a huge success as we took our guests through Italy’s regions, showcasing the best of Italian food and wine in Australia.CIRA’s Italian chefs cooked a five-course feast, with Balla’s own Stefano Manfredi hosting and Sydney’s top sommeliers selecting their favourite wines.
I think Sydney agrees, Italians do it better!
